You may be subject to penalties that range from $800 to $10,000 from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) if you fail to hire the appropriate licensed mold assessors to remediate mold, and/or if the person holding a mold assessment license does not file the required Post-Remediation Assessment Form and Mold Post-Remediation Certification.
Local Law 61 of 2018 established minimum standards for carrying out mold assessment, mold abatement and mold remediation for buildings that contain 10 or more dwelling units or are located on a zoning lot that contains 25,000 or more square feet of non-residential floor area. The law also requires the person holding a mold remediation license to file a Mold Remediation Work Plan Notification Form and the Mold Remediation Work Plan. The person holding a mold assessment license is required to file a Post-Remediation Assessment Form and Mold Post-Remediation Certification. These forms are available below and they must be filed online. If you have any problems submitting these forms, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can search for licensed mold assessor and mold remediator contractors by using the New York State Department’s Licensed Mold Contractors Search Tool.*
*We do not provide recommendations or referrals and hiring a contractor from the list does not shield the owner or the contractor from receiving a violation.
